A tasty chili macaroni recipe
September is one of the busiest months of the year in our household. My kids go back to school, extracurricular activities begin, I turn another year older, and I travel more and more for work each year – and this seems to be the month it all happens!
As we keep busy and the weather cools, I am thankful for the family moments we share at the dinner table. We love a good hearty soup, and chili tends to be one of our favorites of the fall season (see this southwestern chicken and black bean chili recipe, it is a staple in our home). This one pot chicken and sausage chili pasta has quickly become a family favorite – super easy for me to make and a warm and hearty meal that we all love to eat!

There’s a new comfort food movement in town, which includes making smart decisions about the foods we eat in our everyday lives.

Making health-conscious decisions has become a part of my daily life, and I appreciate the fact that I am able to do so with all-natural food choices. I am definitely on board with this new comfort food movement!

One-pot chicken and sausage chili pasta
- Foster Farms Simply Raised Chicken Breast, cubed
- Smoked sausage, sliced
- Diced tomatoes
- Tomato paste
- Chicken broth
- Kidney beans
- Elbow noodles
- Seasonings: chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt, pepper, thyme
Step 1: Brown the chicken breast
To get started, you’ll need a large skillet or pot with a lid. Melt butter in your skillet over medium heat, and chopped onion, minced garlic, and chicken breast cubes. Stir for 3 -5 minutes until the chicken is slightly browned.
Step 2: Add chili ingredients to the pot
Add all other ingredients into the pot – the sausage, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, chicken broth, kidney beans, noodles, and seasonings – stir to combine. If all noodles are not submerged under the liquid, add an extra 1/2 cup of chicken broth until they are. Turn up the heat to high and bring it to a boil.
Step 3: Cover and simmer the chili pasta
Once it’s boiling, turn down the heat to low, give it one more good stir, cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Your one pot chicken sausage chili pasta is ready! Ladle into bowls and top with shredded cheddar cheese and green onions (optional, but delicious).
